  1. Question


    Greetings Richo, how’s the weather affecting your herbs with all those cool days?? Now bam! Heat wave coming your way!! All fun times… we’ve been in an extreme drought here in Mammoth Spring, Arkansas for about 10 weeks now, with heat index consistently above 115 since May..
    Rain finally coming hard tomorrow, forecasting for 5 days straight, getting soil ready with all kinds of seeds for then!!!

    Question; besides being cold hardy and magnificent, what are some medicinal uses for marlothii?

    Had been growing my marlothii just fine back in pnw but had to leave behind, sadly with many other treasures when moving here in Arkansas/ Missouri border back in October 21…… ordering another marlothii today!! Very excited to once again have the opportunity to be in this beauties presence once more; forever more, hoping to one day see full bloom in all her splendor!!
    Stay cool Richo, lots of cooling herbs for Sun iced tea shall drink in these heat waved days approaching!! -naeked

      hi naek, thanks for staying in touch and it sounds like a gnarly cycle for you. give thanks for rain. we’re having a very good year here. yes, we did have a run of cool spring weather that allowed us to set thousands of plants to field and get them set and weeded before the heat hit. a number of direct-seeded crops like styrian pumpkins, blue corn, 4 kinds of watermelons, beets, beans, temperate tulsi, etc. all worked. As for Aloes, if you’re really getting into it, check books by Thomas Cole and also the classic aloes of s africa by van wyk. species aloes such as A. marlothii are a way better grow than any of your box store hybrids. We can always tell marlothii because it has wicked spines not just on the edges but on every surface. Marlothii does hybridize with A. ferox in habitat and they are used interchangeably. there are also specific indications for marlothii, which does become less spiny with age, a single-stemmed tree aloe, actually. all these aloes are going to have the laxative aloe-emodin subcutaneously and inside, the gel, rich in galactomannans, soothing and demulcent, source of allantoin. keep going. r
